NFL Roster Cuts: Fullback Jerome Felton A Fit For Giants?

Reports are out that the Detroit Lions rreleased fourth-year fullback Jerome Felton today.

Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network says Felton is a “Quality FB, but team doing in direction of keeping more TEs.”

Which makes me wonder if Felton would fit with the New York Giants. The Giants have only undrafted free agent Henry Hynoski as a true fullback. Bear Pascoe, who played some fullback last season, is better suited to play tight end.

Hynoski has shown flashes and played most of Monday night’s loss to the New York Jets with the first unit. Still, the run game is important to the Giants and the availability of an experienced fullback who can both block and catch could be tempting.

A 2008 fifth-round pick out of Furman, the 6-foot, 247-pound Felton has started 16 of his 42 games with the Lions, carrying the ball 39 times for 126 yards and adding 30 receptions for 240 yards.
